Trial of Vietnamese blogger Nguyen Van Oai set for August 21st
"Reporters Without Borders (RSF) calls for the immediate and unconditional release of Nguyen Van Oai, a dissident blogger who is due to be tried in the central province of Nghe An on 21 August. It will be his second trial in four years. Oai has already been held for the past seven months, ever since his arrest in Nghe An province on 19 January for allegedly resisting officials and for leaving his home without permission while on probation...Oai was an active blogger on social networks, writing about such sensitive issues as political prisoners and social injustice on his Facebook page. The United Nations Working Group on Arbitrary Detention (UNWGAD) ruled in 2013 that his detention was arbitrary and violated international standards." - Reporters Without Borders

State support has a downside for China’s tech titans
"[T]he fact that the Beijing government blocks most major US internet companies from its enormous market stops Chinese enterprises from being truly competitive," Richard Liu, founder and chief executive of Chinese e-commerce site tells the Financial Times: "It’s like people — if you are put into a big sterile box on the day you are born and not exposed to any microbes or diseases and only given purified air and water then when you come out you will get sick very soon. You will die very soon out in nature." - Article by Jamil Anderlini, Financial Times

Thai Activist Jailed for the Crime of Sharing an Article on Facebook
More from EFF on Jatuphat “Pai” Boonpattaraksa, the Thai activist sentenced this week to 2.5 years in prison for sharing a BBC article on Facebook: "When he was arrested last December, Jatuphat was the first person to be charged with lese majeste since the former King Bhumibol passed away and his son Vajiralongkorn took the throne...The conviction, which appears to have singled Jatuphat out among thousands of other Facebook users who shared the article, sends a strong message to other activists and netizens: overbroad laws like lese majeste can and will be used to target those who oppose military rule in Thailand." - Gennie Gebhart, EFF

Steve Bannon brands far right 'losers' and contradicts Trump in surprise interview | US news | The Guardian
Contradicting Trump’s threats of “fire and fury” on North Korea, Bannon said: “There’s no military solution [to North Korea’s nuclear threats], forget it. Until somebody solves the part of the equation that shows me that 10 million people in Seoul don’t die in the first 30 minutes from conventional weapons, I don’t know what you’re talking about, there’s no military solution here, they got us.”
